During a long, debilitating illness doctors failed to diagnose, author Gabrielle Glancy had enough energy to save Facebook screenshots, but not enough to write. The award-winning poet and nationally known college admissions expert later wove them into a book about her ordeal. I'm Already Disturbed Please Come In: Parasites, Social Media & Other Planetary Disturbances (A Memoir, of Sorts) critiques Western medicine and social media, and examines love in sickness and in health. Gabrielle Glancy is Eric Jansen's guest on Out in the Bay, 7pm Thursday, July 2.* Hear her read from her book and talk about the issues it raises.
